Since the beginning, the big honking screens on Galaxy Note phones have been their most memorable characteristic. But as the rest of the smartphone world caught onto the jumbo display trend and screen sizes from various makers started to converge around six-inch displays, the throne on which Samsung’s Note phones…
As if we don’t have enough smart assistants already, after months of speculation, Samsung finally took its AI-powered voice helper Bixby and put it in a speaker that its calling the Galaxy Home.
The arrival of Samsung’s next flagship phablet was inevitable, but now at least we have a date for when the Galaxy Note 9 will make its official debut: August 9.
How do we find a tiny shred of self-understanding in this vast universe? More simply: how did we get here? A proper map could help us answer this question.
Despite being the biggest smartphone marker in the world, Samsung’s handset repair and service game has often lagged far behind Apple, especially in the US where the number of Apple Stores with Genius Bars is far greater than the tally of Samsung-specific alternatives.
Galaxies didn’t always take on the beautiful spiral shape we’ve come to associate with Andromeda and our own Milky Way. Looking far away into deep space—and into the past—ancient galaxies mostly look like giant blobs. But thanks to gravity’s light-bending properties, scientists have spotted a confounding thing in the…
This might come as a surprise, but we don’t really know what our own galaxy looks like. We can only see it from our lonely point in space, and we can’t leave it to get a picture from up above. Scientists want to change that—and they’re getting closer.
On Thursday, May 4th, Hubble dropped a “cute” press release comparing a new image of a galaxy cluster to the Marvel movie Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol. 2. It was a timely yet mega-dad corny way to make the image of the galaxy cluster Abell 370 seem relevant. While there’s literally no connection between the James Gunn…
It’s another casual day in space discovery: Apparently, an international team of scientists has found a giant wave of hot gas chugging along through the Perseus galaxy cluster, located about 250 million lightyears away. By combining data from NASA’s Chandra X-ray Observatory with radio observations and computer…
Researchers scanning the skies just got a big surprise. They spotted a humongous galaxy orbiting our own, where none had been seen before. It appeared, seemingly, out of nowhere.
Look deep into this photo and what you’ll see is something further away from you than you’ve ever glimpsed before.
Seven years after their last effort at mapping our Galaxy, the APEX telescope has given us something even more complete: A map of the galaxy that covers four times the area of its previous best.
The original smartphone-with-a-stylus is all grown up. It’s easily the best smartphone Samsung has ever made, and it looks and feels the part.
So the word “Plus” could mean many things, right? Better processor? Camera? Features? In the case of the S6 Edge Plus, though, it’s just size. This phone is almost an exact copy of this year’s S6 Edge except for its whopping 5.7-inch display. As far as “innovation” goes, Samsung is kind of phoning it in with this one.
Created by stitching together over 400,000 taken by the Spitzer Space Telescope, YouTube user daveachuk made this incredibly beautiful video that makes it feel as if you’re floating along the Milky Way. The finished footage is breathtaking and makes it seem as if you’re just looking out a window as you fly through the…
Mapping the outer fringes of our universe is, obviously, a tremendously tricky task. But we should be able to get the parameters of our own galaxy pretty easily, right? Well, maybe not. And there’s a reason why.
Do you think you know the Milky Way? You don't know the Milky Way.
For years, a smartphone's main selling points were faster processors and better screens. But we're knee deep in diminishing returns these days, and some makers are using out-of-the-box thinking to draw our eye. None more so than Samsung—and the new S6 Edge is the evidence.
